Moses Kuria arrest: Top lawyers take on each other over …
– Kuria was arrested in Nairobi for allegedly assaulting a woman at a local media house studios
– Police teargassed his colleagues who visited him at Kilimani station
– Lawyer Nelson Havi reminded the politicians of their past utterances and support for injustices
City lawyers Nelson Havi and Kipchumba Murkomen are tearing each other apart over arrest of Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria.
The heated debate was sparked off by Havi’s remarks that reminded Kuria’s colleagues Alice Wahome and Ndindi Nyoro of their firm support for police brutality in 2017.
MPs Nyoro and Wahome were teargassed alongside other supporters who had visited the detained leader at Kilimani police station on the night of Friday, January 10.
According to the Law Society of Kenya (LSK) presidential candidate, no one should celebrate blatant disregard of the law even when injustice is meted on one’s enemy.
“The State has never been the citizen’s friend even when you are part of it. If in doubt, study the origin of State or check what these Wajinga Nyinyi ‘victims’ were doing and saying in 2017 and 2018,” he said.
To this, Murkomen was quick to warn his learned friend he was treading on dangerous ground as far as the LSK elections are concerned given Wahome is a senior bar member.
“Hon. Alice is a senior member of the bar. A Court order has been ignored. You want to be President LSK. You are mocking members. Wacha Kieleweke,” the senator responded.
Unbowed and ready to make his position known, Havi said he was ready to defend the rights of every citizen as a lawyer but he quickly reminded those teargassed that they created the mess.
“I must however, remind Alice Wahome, you and all those tear gassed yesterday, that you are the reason as to why we don’t have adherence to the rule of law and Court orders are blatantly disobeyed by the State. This, we will not sugarcoat even as we seek for votes,” he insisted.
The lawmaker was arrested in Nairobi for allegedly assaulting a woman at Royal Media Services premises.
Kuria allegedly punched Joyce Wanja, a media commentator, on December 8, 2019, during a debate at one of the company’s vernacular stations.
